Beirut through the eyes of Instagram user @BeirutPost
What better way to get a glimpse into an area from afar than through pictures? Using the photo sharing network Instagram, we can get a unique insight into more or less anywhere in the world.
One of the great things about Instagram is the communities that have evolved using the service. We’ll be posting the pick of the bunch from Instagram communities from every one of our destinations, beginning with Beirut!
These are images from the BeirutPost feed, which can be found here. BeirutPost is part of #IgersBeirut, the Beirut Instagram community. Search Instagram for more of their amazing images and check out BeirutPost on Tumblr here too!
#bmieditchallenge Week Four Winner Announced
Today, Instagram user @escotae was crowned the fourth winner of the #bmieditchallenge competition, winning a pair of return flights from bmi in return for his creativity and editing skills.
Last week’s image editing challenge on Instagram featured the Pigeon Rocks, a beautiful arch set in the sea off the coast of Beirut. The competition saw over 130 entries - the most we’ve ever received in a single week - with some truly incredible edits from the Instagram community. The finals of this week’s competition had an extra stage, featuring a judging section from the London based Instagram community @IGersLondon.
On @escotae’s winning image, @IGersLondon said, “It was a real tough choice but in the end we went for this edit because it was easy on the eye and had a real warmth and beauty about it”
The next #bmieditchallenge is now live on Instagram and features the Roman ruins of Jerash in Jordan, 30 miles north of the Capital city Amman. If you would like to enter this week’s competition, simply head over to @flybmi’s feed on Instagram and submit your edit using the hashtag #bmieditchallenge before 5pm on Thursday 5th April.

This weeks #bmieditchallenge saw the Instagram community create some truly stunning edits of the beautiful SchönBrunn Palace in Vienna. Submissions varied from the surreal, with sharks, windsurfers and ocean liners all appearing in the palace’s fountain as to some truly exquisite pieces of art.

However, it was Instagram user @Clarkey who came out victorious with the lovely edit below.
